Start today! Be successful, boost your energy, and have a good positive attitude. Feel like a million bucks. Your health and diet depends on an alkaline body that has a balanced pH level.
A very interesting fact to know is that your body tries 24-7-365 to maintain a balanced pH alkaline body!
Whether you are on vacation, at work, driving, or watching TV, your body is working 24-7 to maintain a neutral pH level. Your body can only work with what you give it. Do you feed your body sweets and carbonated drinks? STOP, you are what you eat. We have all heard that saying before. But have you ever stopped to think why. Be kind to your body, help your body help you. You are in this together.
Common diseases all stem from too much acid in the body.
From square one; everybody talks about a strong immune system, saying that that is what makes you healthy. But let’s get to the root of what makes a strong immune system. It is a balanced pH alkaline body. If your body is not alkaline, your immune system suffers. pH (potential of hydrogen) which has a scale of 1-14, 7 being in the middle of the scale.
If the body cannot keep a neutral balance, it starts pulling the nutrients it needs (vitamins and minerals) from organs and other parts of your body; causing your body to compromise itself. (…stealing from Peter to pay Paul) This is why the more nutritional food you eat, keeps your body at an even keel; which makes your body function like a well oiled machine, and give you optimal health. A balanced pH level will also help you absorb nutrients which help in digestion and metabolism and in the elimination of toxins, which also sheds unwanted weight.
Your body starts to stress when it has to work over-time to compensate the extra acid. This is when you will physically see the results on your body, or feel pain that is not necessary! Control arthritis, swelling, infection, inflammation, and the feeling of being tired. Keep diseases at bay and keep your body in check. It can be done. When you maintain a balanced alkaline pH daily, your body can rebuild, repair, rejuvenate and protect your body from getting ill. Case in point: have you heard people say “oh that person looks good, or that person looks young, or that person never ages.” Look how fabulous Barbara Walters looks at her age.
Now how do we do this? It all revolves around the food you eat.
What we eat and drink will impact where our body’s pH level falls, and our body’s pH will control the activity of every metabolic function happening in our body.

A common misconception of the yellow lemon is that it is very acidic. You are right considering the first taste in your mouth is sour, but your assumption is misleading.
But from a nutritional point of view, the properties in a lemon are very alkaline after digestion. Selective meats are alkaline before digestion but are very acidic to the body after eaten.
